Shane and I had a quick chat over Skype to hash some things out about
the paragraph above... I think we settled on this language that Shane
proposed:

"""
The Host Language MAY require the automatic inclusion of one or more
default RDFa Profiles.  If it does, the RDFa Profile triples that
establish term or URI mappings MUST NOT change without changing the
associated profile URI.  RDFa Processors MAY embed, cache, or retrieve
the RDFa Profile triples associated with that profile.
